“Worst service in Aix.”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Too many good options in Aix to waste your time and money here. Incredibly rude service to foreigners. Avoid at all costs.

“Delicious and interesting food, great service”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We went on 21 March. We were delighted with both food and service. Given that it's fine dining, it was actually good value, too - €141 for two three-course meals and a bottle of wine. I found the food delicious with many satisfying and intriguing details. My partner is a vegetarian who will pickily eat some fish, and they accommodated requests to modify a couple of items very happily. The service was friendly and down to earth without being too in your face. Very happy we went here.

“Un bon cuisinier, un service tres moyen”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

how to mix a very good cook with a very bad service. Come and see by yourself. A talent is litterally killed by an approach that has no consideration to customer.

“Excellent food, service, atmosphere”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I went to this restaurant for the first time while visiting Aix after many recommendations. We opted for the 8 courses at around 78 euros each. Wow! The food was outstanding and well presented. Each server worked hard to provide details of each course in English. The courses came quickly, allowing enough break between each course, they were of a good portion size as well. The taste sensation was not quite what you would get at a Michelon star restaurant but enough to really enjoy the meal. We actually missed the eight course as we could not eat any more. Well done Chef Formal
